The best way to deliver effective corporate training?
Corporate training can be a challenging task when one doesn’t know which path to embark on. Employee training has been playing a major role in the corporate world ever since the 1970s. Nothing hurts more than a failed training session. One that has little or nothing to offer. And it isn’t even necessarily the fault of the trainer but circumstantial goofs and lack of better research on things that are genuinely required.
In this article, we will provide you with the best way to deliver effective corporate training.
Find out what your company and its employee’s lack:
The best way to deliver any corporate training is to first start by research. A strong research, on the company and the shortcomings of the employees to be trained, is the most trusted foundation. And a trusted foundation is very much required to lay the best groundworks for corporate training.
This can be harder than superficially guessing they lack in. Many times managers hire trainers based on their assumptions of what the employees require, but most times they are absolutely wrong. The best approach would be to ask the employees what they think is missing or lacking and decide likewise based on the majority of answers.
This is half of the work. Finding out the best option to help out employees is more beneficial than spending time, money and energy over the wrong kind of training and realising it wasn’t fruitful at all.
Choose the best channel of training:
While there are many ways one can deliver corporate training (thanks to the rapid digitalisation) it is crucial that it be done in the right way.
1. Web-Based Training:
Web-based training is the best way to train on those topics that are technical, and do not require personal touch with all employees. This can prove to be of real value as the time spent on travelling is removed and so are travelling costs and it keeps the training to the point. However, this method can prove to be disadvantageous while conducting training that requires a personal touch. Teaching employee engagement or team building through the computer screen can prove to be rather ironic if nothing. So is teaching soft skills, from the other side of the world, not the best idea.
2. Training In Person:
Training in person has always been the most effective way to train in most topics. Call it old-school but trainers and learners alike have always agreed that the best learnings take place with the physical presence of the trainer. Training in person is ideal for all kind of corporate trainings and has proven exceptionally the best for non-technical trainings. While it is the best way to go but it is undoubtedly more expensive than training conducted through a computer screen. It is also, in most cases more time-consuming.
Keep a detailed record of the training:
To deliver the most exceptional type of training, trainers need to keep a record of all the trainings they conduct. A trainer, by the law of nature, is also a learner. Keeping records helps understand the shortcomings and general areas of corrections that can lead to having better outcomes.
Review and revise your training:
After every training session trainers must earn a feedback to know the effectiveness of the conducted session. This effectiveness should be measured by the company so as to understand the Return on Investment (ROI) and to avoid things that prove to be of no benefits.
